Genie Dumoulin – Genie is a native of Beacon, New York. She and her husband, Ron, lived in upstate NY until their daughters, Michelle and Shawna, were married in 1989.
Being able to move to Florida was their dream, made possible through Genie’s position at IBM where she was a DB2 database designer, programmer, analyst and administrator. Their love of the beach life was not a match for the call of the first grandchild and Genie took an early retirement from IBM landing a database development job in Greenville, SC so that they would be closer to their daughters.
Now after being here since 1994, there are 3 grandchildren, all living within about just miles from their present home in Landrum, which makes the move all the more enjoyable. They also have pet goats and find the area very similar to the upstate NY area where they grew up.
With downsizing, Genie’s job in Greenville came to an end and the call back to her love of real estate became strong again. Genie owned her own Real Estate business, Three Wishes Real Estate, near Poughkeepsie, NY in the 1970s and 1980s before moving to FL. She very much enjoys meeting new people and being able to find solutions to their real estate needs, both buying and selling.
After working with a broker in Landrum for 4 years, she joined Foothills Realty several years ago to be able to provide a wider area to her clients. She is a Broker and a member of the Spartanburg County, SC MLS, the Western North Carolina Regional MLS.
This is a beautiful area with a friendly atmosphere, a laid-back life style, and beautiful homes in every price range.
Genie has always felt that being honest and fair with people is her best quality. She will work with you whether you are buying or selling to make it as rewarding an experience as possible.
